Electricity is sold to consumers thru meters that record kilowatt hours: 1000 watts turned on for 1 hour= 1kwh or kilowatt hour. If cost for 1 kwh = $0.10, then 1500 watts for 1 hour would cost 15 cents. Varies by location of the country. Check your utility bill for exact cost per kwh.

### How do you convert 1500 killiwat hours to joule?

1 kilowatt = 1,000 watts
1 watt = 1 joule per second
1 hour = 3,600 seconds
(1,500 kilowatt-hour) x (1,000 watt / kilowatt) x (1
joule / watt-second) x (3,600 second / hour) =
(1,500 x 1,000 x 3,600) x (kilowatt - hour - watt - joule
- second) / (kilowatt - watt - second - hour)
= 5,400,000,000 joules

### How much does it cost to run your 1500 watt heater?

a 1500 watt heater uses a power of 1500 watts or 1.5 kilowatts, so
each hour it is used will take 1.5 kilowatt-hours of energy. You
have to multiply the power by the time to find the energy used, and
energy is what you are billed for.
Kilowatt-hours are also called Units and you get billed on the
units used. 1 Unit costs around $0.15 or £0.15, more or less,
depending on where you are so that heater would cost about 22
cents/pence for each hour.

### How much energy does it take to light a 60 watt light bulb for a hour?

It takes 60 watt-hours. Same as lighting a 1-watt bulb for 60
hours; or 60 bulbs of 1 watt each for 1 hour. You get the
idea.
Notice the units: watt-hours, not watts. Watt is a unit of power,
watt-hour is a unit of energy. 1 watt-hour = 0.001 kWh
(kilowatt-hour) = 3600 joules = 860 calories = 3.4 BTU.

### How do you calculate the Monthly cost of using a 700 watt refrigerator that runs for 10 hours a day at a cost of 0.09 Killowatts per hour?

(700 watts) x (10 hours/day) x (30 days/month) x (1 kilowatt /
1,000 watts) =
(700 x 10 x 30 / 1,000) (watt - hour - day -
kilowatt / day - month - watt) =
210 kilowatt-hour / month
We're guessing that the actual cost of your electric energy is
$0.09 per kilowatt-hour.
(210 kilowatt-hour / month) x ($0.09 / kilowatt-hour) =
$18.90 per month .
